This is a good example of why we need city council districts. I can guarantee you that if we had districts, at least one councilmember would've been there: the one whose district included the Seattle Center.

You all were pumping Tim Burgess to the max - he did not show? Oh, how gross. Better pin him to the wall, you need his leadership, or so they say.

@4: Exactly. It's time for the sad, sad 'Fun Forest' to go.

It's all about what the Gates Foundation and the Allen Foundation told the city to do.

Oh, like I'm not supposed to admit the two enormous elephants in the room are keeping the skate park from being located where the desolate Fun Forest is?

just for the record, will, i'm okay if they take out the EMP to make room for the skate park.

though, the sky church is pretty cool. maybe leave that part. i'm sure it won't effect the aesthetic quality of the building.

put the skate park ON TOP of the nw rooms.

eminently sensible.

I'm okay with taking out the EMP, so long as they put back Flight to Mars.

I liked the Mercer Arena idea, but there's nothing the Mercer Arena could offer that we couldn't accomplish by putting the skatepark in EMP.

On average, how often did you skate at the old skate park?
Now that its gone, where do you skate? Have you ever gotten in trouble for skating in the "wrong" place?
